What's been sewing on...

A few weeks ago, had an amazing sale where all their jelly rolls were half off. (It was awesome!) More of a 'yardage' girl, I never worked with jelly rolls before. I knew that the prices couldn't be beat for that first time 'give it a try' project. And... I just loved the patterns for Tula Pink's Moon Shine:)

After researching a couple of quilt patterns, I figured what better way to get me hooked than with a simple design that promised a good result. Take a look at how Tula Pink came out as a jelly roll race quilt.

I loooooove how colorful it is!
This video on youtube is pretty good in case you want to try this too:)

I picked one of the fabrics from the collection for the backing. This was my favorite!

Now, I still have to connect the batting and back to the front. Currently, the game plan is to get a walking foot for my machine and meticulously pin everything together. I'm debating on a design for the topstitch as well. Should I go with diagonals or follow the stripes? I just can't wait to see how this will come out!

Happy sewing on!
